Khyber: Small blast damages Nato oil tanker

nato trucks PESHAWAR: A small bomb blast on Tuesday damaged a truck carrying oil to Nato troops in Afghanistan that was parked near the border in northwestern Pakistan, a government official said.

The bombing was the fourth attack on stalled Nato supply convoys since Pakistan closed the main border crossing last week to protest an alliance helicopter attack that killed three Pakistani border guards.

Wajid Khan, a local administrator in Pakistan’s Khyber tribal region, said the bomb was planted underneath the tanker while it was parked alongside more than 100 other trucks waiting to cross into Afghanistan.

Khan said oil started leaking out of the damaged tanker following the attack and authorities were moving the other trucks in case a fire started. — AP
